Being the typical tourist, we had to pay homage to this bakery's original location. Lovely ambience and the hardest task was to decide which slice of heaven to buy from the endless selection on display. We ended of with the banana pudding and salted caramel...More

You can't miss this tiny bakery because you can smell the deliciousness from down the block. Even though there's usually a queue, the modest wait is more than worth it. We tried the banana pudding and the red velvet cheesecake and they were both exquisite....More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

As far as I know the bakery opened in 1996, but runs now under a new management.

Can't hurt to order it in advance. We did that for my dad's birthday and it was definitely worth it, since we wanted a specific flavor.
